American Academy of Environmental Medicine publishes article exposing various health risks associated with GM foods.
According to the AAEM, genetically modified foods (GMO) are associated with a multitude of health risks including “infertility, immune problems, accelerated aging, faulty insulin regulation, and changes in major organs and the gastrointestinal system.”
The article, which is backed by a diverse group of experts and organizations, recommends that health professionals tell their patients to avoid GMOs.
“Before the FDA decided to allow GMOs into food without labeling, FDA scientists had repeatedly warned that GM foods can create unpredictable, hard-to-detect side effects, including allergies, toxins, new diseases, and nutritional problems. They urged long-term safety studies, but were ignored.”
The AAEM warns of more than a “causal association” between GMO foods and adverse health effects. Several animal studies reportedly confirmed a strong consistency between genetically modified foods and disease.
According to the article, studies showed significant “immune dysregulation, including upregulation of cytokines associated with asthma, allergy, and inflammation” in animals.
Other experiments linked liver damage along with changes in the kidney, pancreas, and spleen to a GM diet.
“With the precautionary principle in mind, because GM foods have not been properly tested for human consumption, and because there is ample evidence of probable harm, the AAEM asks:
Physicians to educate their patients, the medical community, and the public to avoid GM foods when possible and provide educational materials concerning GM foods and health risks.
Physicians to consider the possible role of GM foods in the disease processes of the patients they treat and to document any changes in patient health when changing from GM food to non-GM food.
Our members, the medical community, and the independent scientific community to gather case studies potentially related to GM food consumption and health effects, begin epidemiological research to investigate the role of GM foods on human health, and conduct safe methods of determining the effect of GM foods on human health.
For a moratorium on GM food, implementation of immediate long term independent safety testing, and labeling of GM foods, which is necessary for the health and safety of consumers.”
While people still reject irrefutable scientific evidence in order to denounce the possible health risks associated with GMOs, a growing number of countries are banning them completely.
Ultimately, Monsanto is losing an information war to vigilant members of society who are making an impact big enough for WalMart to notice.
Our choice is simple, either we encourage the production of poisonous food designed to slowly deteriorate our bodies while blindly accepting propaganda or we can continue the fight and embrace what is natural.
I say we vote with our dollar and choose God’s creation which does not require an extensive study nor an interminable debate.
